Has anyone picked up the KOTCS soundtrack yet? How does it compare to the other three Indy movie soundtracks? Is this one of Williams's better soundtracks? Anything memerable?

After listening to the soundtrack it's very much in keeping with the style of Raiders of the Lost Ark. There are alot of pieces taken directly from that soundtrack. It's a very quiet feeling soundtrack with occasional Indy, Marian and well of the souls pieces spliced here and there. There is even some mariachi type music in there. The alien pieces remind me of the scene in ROTS where Palpy is confessing his sith envolvment to Anakin or when the Ark is burning a hole in its crate. All in all the music does fit in with the other Indy soundtracks.

Oddly, the music really let me down.  Do I remember Mutt's Theme?  Nope.  The Russians?  Nope. Like the prequel soundtracks, Williams is too subtle these days.  The music doesn't seem harcater driven, but action driven.
